BBQ Brisket Tacos

No smoker? No problem. Make the best of a good thing with this really simple recipe for slow cooker fork tender brisket. Then you know I had to add some cheese sauce and make these all messy and fun.


- Dark brown sugar - Adobo sauce - Cumin - Paprika - Salt and pepper - Beef brisket - Onion - Tomato paste - Garlic cloves - Vegetable oil - Chili powder - Water - Ketchup - Apple cider vinegar


Combine the sugar, 2 tbsp. adobo sauce, cumin, paprika, 1 teas salt, and 2 teas black pepper in a bowl. Stir to combine. 

Using a fork, prick the brisket all over. Slather in the sugar mix and wrap in plastic wrap. Let the flavors mingle in the fridge over night.

When ready to cook, unwrap brisket and place in slow cooker. 

In a small heatproof bowl, microwave the onions, tomato paste, garlic, oil, chili powder, and remaining 2 tbsp. adobo sauce in for 1 minute increments, stirring as needed, until the onion is soft.

Transfer to slow cooker. Add the water and cover and cook on high for 5 to 7 hours or on low 9 to 11 hours.
